“Read it. You will be uplifted.”—Ruth Ozeki, Zen priest, author of A Tale for the Time Being Marie Mutsuki Mockett's family owns a Buddhist temple 25 miles from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. In March 2011, after the earthquake and tsunami, radiation levels prohibited the burial of her Japanese grandfather's bones. As Japan mourned thousands of people lost in the disaster, Mockett also grieved for her American father, who had died unexpectedly. Seeking consolation, Mockett is guided by a colorful cast of Zen priests and ordinary Japanese who perform rituals that disturb, haunt, and finally uplift her. Her journey leads her into the radiation zone in an intricate white hazmat suit; to Eiheiji, a school for Zen Buddhist monks; on a visit to a Crab Lady and Fuzzy-Headed Priest’s temple on Mount Doom; and into the "thick dark" of the subterranean labyrinth under Kiyomizu temple, among other twists and turns. From the ecstasy of a cherry blossom festival in the radiation zone to the ghosts inhabiting chopsticks, Mockett writes of both the earthly and the sublime with extraordinary sensitivity. Her unpretentious and engaging voice makes her the kind of companion a reader wants to stay with wherever she goes, even into the heart of grief itself.

The 2011 Tōhoku earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster (collectively referred to as ‘3.11’, the date of the earthquake), had a lasting impact on Japan’s identity and global image. In its immediate aftermath, mainstream media presented the country as a disciplined, resilient and composed nation, united in the face of a natural disaster. However, 3.11 also drew worldwide attention to the negative aspects of Japanese government and society, thought to have caused the unresolved situation at Fukushima. Spurred by heightened emotions following the triple disaster, the Japanese became increasingly polarised between these two views of how to represent themselves. How did literature and popular culture respond to this dilemma? Re-imagining Japan after Fukushima attempts to answer that question by analysing how Japan was portrayed in post-3.11 fiction. Texts are selected from the Japanese, English and French languages, and the portrayals are also compared with those from non-fiction discourse. This book argues that cultural responses to 3.11 had a significant role to play in re-imagining Japan after Fukushima.

On March 11, 2011, an underwater earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tohoku, Japan, triggered one of the most devastating tsunamis of a generation. The aftermath was overwhelming: communities were reduced to rubble, thousands of people were missing or dead, and relief organizations struggled to reach affected areas to provide aid for survivors and victims of radiation from compromised nuclear reactors. In Japan after 3/11, editors Pradyumna P. Karan and Unryu Suganuma assemble geographers, economists, humanists, and scientists to consider the complex economic, physical, and social impacts of this heartbreaking disaster. Historical geographers place the events of March 2011 in context, while other contributors assess the damage and recommend strategies for the long process of reclamation and rebuilding. The book also includes interviews with victims that explore the social implications of radioactive contamination and invite comparisons to the discrimination faced by survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. Balancing the natural and social sciences, this timely volume offers not only a model of interdisciplinary research for scholars but also an invaluable guide to the planning and implementation of reconstruction.

"A new EAT, PRAY, LOVE."--Graceful Passages At 30, Californian Leza Lowitz is single and travelling the world, which suits her just fine. Coming of age in Berkeley, California, during the sexual and feminist revolutions of the 1960s, she learned that marriage and family could wait. Or could they? Then she moved to Japan and met the man of her dreams, and her heart opened in ways she never thought possible. And when she approached 40--the same age her own mother had left the family behind to "find herself" --Lowitz yearned for a child. In a reverse trajectory of her own mother's life, Lowitz sought to heal the wounds that had kept motherhood at bay. As her healing took her from the San Francisco Bay Area to New York and Tokyo, with spiritual quests in India on the way, Lowitz came to a deeper understanding of what motherhood means. She went from doing her yoga practice for herself to opening a yoga studio in Tokyo and fostering a community. Then, at 44, she sought to adopt a child in Japan, where bloodlines are paramount and family ties are almost feudal in their cultural importance. She unearthed lessons from a Jewish childhood and married them to an adulthood spent with Zen and Yoga in Japan. Though raised in Berkeley, one of the most diverse and progressive places in the world, Lowitz settles in Japan, one of the most outwardly homogenous and socially staid." In Search of the Sun" is the story of what Lowitz learned from both worlds. It's the story of how she conquered her fears, blasted through inner and outer limits, and became the mother she'd never thought she'd be. And when the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown hit Japan, the disasters reinforce what she'd come to know by then: that the only true home is the one we make within ourselves."We think we know where babies come from, but do we know how a mother is born? "In Search of the Sun" is a wise and compelling story of becoming a mother by opening your heart. Warm, luminous and healing."--Karen Maezen Miller, author of "Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood"
